24 weeks in and I am enjoying the normality of the second trimester. Everyone keeps telling me how terrible it is to be pregnant during summer, but this is my second pregnancy during summer and it really hasn’t been that bad for me to date. Here’s a round up of the past 4 weeks:
So with only a few days left to Christmas, I thought I would have some fun with my DIY mani yesterday and sought some festive inspiration from pinterest. There were so many different designs but I went for something simple – there was no way I would be able to paint a reindeer on my nail all by myself!!!
Only 10 days remain before we can eat and be merry. I really enjoy the build up to Christmas day…. shopping for gifts, fruit mince pies (mmm), putting up the tree, listening to Christmas carols and wrapping gifts. We always complain about how full the shopping centers are, yet we find ourselves there ever too often looking for gifts for special people in our lives. I only get some time off from work from the 24th but things have already slowed down at the office and it’s not affecting my Christmas spirit one bit.
Since we’ve shared the news of my pregnancy with #2, many people have asked and commented about what the age gap will be between Alyssa and #2. I never really thought about it that much before, but it’s got me thinking lately. Alyssa will be +-2 years and 2 months older than her brother.
So what is the ideal age gap to have between children? The truth is there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It’s up to you to work out what length of gap may suit your family best. There are however pros and cons to smaller and larger gaps.
